Our planet faces major threats, and as London Citizens, we feel responsible seeing the impact the climate crisis is having on our city and across the world right now.
Today, we have the power to introduce climate policies that will:
Restore our city
Create 100,000 new green jobs
Protect our health
We'll achieve this by transforming London into the first Just Transition city in the UK, ensuring policies of a clean, green city tackles inequality and primarily benefits low-income communities.
And here's how we plan to do it.
What is a Just Transition city?
A 'Just Transition city’ aims to ensure that new green policies benefit low-income communities, who face significant affects of climate change.
This means ensuring social housing are the first homes to get new insulation, that green buses run to under-served, polluted areas of the city, and new green jobs can be accessed by low-income communities, among many other positive changes.
Watch our video below to find out more about this campaign.
- Listening to over 400 leaders from 20 different organisations over 3 months who will share stories on how energy bill prices, mouldy and damp housing, and more has impacted them.
- Workshop ideas and policy options with experts; taking our top two policy priorities to the London Citizens delegate meeting in November 2020.
- Take our plans to the London Mayoral Assembly in Spring 2021, working with the new mayor to redesign our economy, energy, transport and health systems. We did this for the London Mayoral Assembly in 2016 with Mayoral candidates Zac Goldsmith and Sadiq Khan MP in front of 6,000 London Citizens
